The Sentencing Project’s 2019 Annual Report documents our contributions to a rapidly growing consensus that we must reduce the country’s misguided reliance on mass incarceration.
Among the highlights of our work and impact this past year, The Sentencing Project:
- Achieved substantial milestones in our national Campaign to End Life Imprisonment and cap sentences at 20 years.
- Witnessed the impact of our work in the strong positions that Democratic presidential candidates have taken throughout their campaigns on criminal justice reform.
- Collaborated on campaigns in Washington, DC to gain City Council support for voting rights of people in prison and for a “second look” policy to provide resentencing consideration for individuals whose crimes were committed under the age of 25. Click to here read the full report.
